How to Choose a Propane Supplier Alto Michigan

Whether you need propane gas for your grill or household appliances, you’ll need to find a reputable supplier near you. It’s important that you pick a propane supplier that offers the services you need for your home. Continue reading to learn how to determine which propane dealers deserve your business.

Propane Delivery Options

Most propane companies offer home delivery on an automatic or as-needed basis. If you depend on propane to power household appliances (like your furnace), you’ll want to sign up for automatic propane delivery. That way, you’ll always have enough in your propane tank to keep your home running. If you only use propane seasonally, we recommend scheduling deliveries when you get below a quarter of a tank. For example, many of our customers use propane grills during the summer.

How often you schedule deliveries also depends on propane tank sizes and how much fuel you use on a daily basis. For example, small propane tanks will need to be exchanged or refilled more often if you use them every day. Automatic propane delivery ensures that you never run out of fuel.

No Installation Fees

Our propane dealers don’t charge you a fee for installing and setting up a new tank. When shopping for a propane supplier, it’s important that you ask about their installation fees. Even if you already have a propane tank, you may need to replace it in the future. The average underground propane tank can last up to 30 years with proper maintenance. The propane tank cost can either make or break your budget.

Our propane tank installation service includes:

  • No installation fees
  • Complete safety check
  • Up to 100 feet of copper tubing provided free, if needed
  • Automatic or as-needed delivery options
  • 24/7 emergency service
  • Fast, friendly, reliable service

24/7 Emergency Service

If something goes wrong with your propane tank, you’ll want it repaired as soon as possible. Many of the homeowners we serve use propane to power household appliances and heat their homes, which makes propane tank repair a top priority. Before choosing a propane supplier, ask if they offer emergency service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our service personnel are always on call, which means they’ll be able to fix your residential propane tank as soon as possible.

Excellent Customer Service

Propane companies aren’t required to seek accreditation from the Better Business Bureau (BBB), but those that do often offer superior customer service. The BBB is a neutral party that determines whether companies make good efforts to resolve customer complaints. You want to choose a propane supplier that values its relationships with customers enough to answer your questions and resolve any issues. Altogas has had BBB accreditation since 1998. After serving customers for over 35 years, you can count on our expertise and dedication.
